# Isosceles triangle 9

Given an isosceles triangle ABC where AB= AC. The perimeter is 64cm, and the altitude is 24cm. Find the area of the isosceles triangle.

A =  168 cm2

### Step-by-step explanation:

Try calculation via our triangle calculator. Did you find an error or inaccuracy? Feel free to write us. Thank you! Steve
No, your solution starts with h=25cm, but the question says that h=24cm.

So, looking at one-half of the isosceles triangle, x2 + 242 = (32-x)2    solves to x=7cm,   which gives the area of the isosceles triangle as 7x24 = 168cm2 Dr Math
thank you, we corrected 25 to 24 as altitude.... Tips to related online calculators
